it’s one less thing for YOU to do…

We get it. Running a business is HARD, and you have to wear a lot of hats. Whether you’re a one-woman show or have a team of payers, you’ve already got ENOUGH on your plate.

Let us tackle your social media planning + scheduling.

Not only will you receive custom social media planning based on your specific needs, and custom photos + graphics created specifically for that plan, but we will take care of all the scheduling + posting FOR YOU (including hashtags, locations, and all the other nitty-gritty details that suck up waaaaay too much of your time).


it’s a custom digital marketing plan designed just for YOUR brand

This isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of thing.

We help identify your target market + how to best connect with them… incorporating your unique look, feel, voice, and other important details into everything we do.   

This gives your brand a cohesive look across all platforms, so it becomes instantly recognizable + memorable…

which helps you stand out from your competition.

social media posts with a PURPOSE.

We know how it goes… there’s a sudden “oh, crap!” moment when you realize it’s been awhile since you’ve been online, and scramble to put SOMETHING up on your social networks.

So your posts end up being a mish-mash of a bunch of random things that get mediocre engagement, leaving you feeling frazzled + like you’re wasting your time.

But what if your social posts worked FOR you?

We will create a unique digital marketing plan and schedule it ahead of time, not only allowing you to breathe deeply knowing that it’s DONE, but that there is a reason and PURPOSE behind each and every social post in place.

Working directly with you, we’ll create a unique marketing plan that keeps you in the forefront of your audience’s mind… by highlighting what YOU want them to know about who you are + what you do, taking into consideration any seasonal services or products you’d like to sell more of and educating your audience so not only are they primed to purchase, but also end up becoming loyal brand advocates along the way.


build REAL relationships, not just random followings

We like to use the 80/20 rule…

80% of the time we’ll share posts that engage, educate, entertain + connect with your audience, in order to build a long-term following.

And only 20% of the posts will be used to directly sell your product or services.

WHY?

Because nowadays, it’s all about EMOTIONAL marketing.

And unlike other marketing methods, social media allows you to strip away the “strictly business” side of what you do, and express your HUMANITY.

Stories, connections, and being personable so that your client can recognize themselves within your service/product and want to be a part of it.

And the best way to do this is to SHOW THEM HOW.

Meet MICHELLE of

The Suitcase Studio…

Hey there… I’m the one behind the camera, but am soooo much MORE than just a photographer.

With my degree in psychology + years spent in social media marketing, not only do I know how to uncover your unique voice + style, but SHOW IT OFF for the world to see your brilliance, too.

I understand the subtleties of color choice, image placement, and the combo of visual + written content that will leave them wanting MORE. Don't believe me? Check out what my nearly 10k Instagram followers have to say.

I've also personally been there, too. I've built my own business from the ground up, and have been running The Suitcase Studio for over 10 years now (including a relocation to Bend in 2015 and rebuilding my clientele from scratch), handling all of my own branding, social media content, marketing materials and web design, too!

I’m known in the industry as offering the ULTIMATE client experience, and have the backing of sponsors such as StickyFolios and HoneyBook.

And on top of that... my photography style is totally FUN + stress-free. So if you're not comfortable in front of the camera... no worries! I actually prefer REAL people over models any day, and will have you feeling like the million bucks (and more) that you're worth.

And a few technical details (in case you're a biz geek who's into that sort of thing)... I'm a member of Professional Photographers of America, I carry liability insurance, and have had work published in various places including The Source Weekly and Bend Magazine.
